This thesis investigates the feasibility of using ARPANET type technology at Naval Air Station, Lemoore, California. Aspects of functions on the ARPANET, their applications to needs in the United States Navy in general and more specifically their application at Naval Air Station Lemoore were investigated. Emphasis was placed on improvements in readiness, expediency, and efficiency, with discussion of monetary and man-hour savings where applicable. This is a baseline study for potential users to illustrate what can be done in an operational setting. The study concludes that ARPANET installation is technologically feasible, appears to be relatively inexpensive compared to multiple individual minicomputer installations, and has the added importance of being a significant management tool. Before implementing these ideas, further detailed analysis would be required comparing operating, maintenance and training costs.
